Sofia 365: Day 365!

Sofia 365: Day 365

Sofie’s 2nd birthday went without hardly a hitch last Sunday. Birthday weekend was great overall, my parents Friday, Jason’s family on Saturday, and Sunday was Birthday ZOO Day (photos coming soon)!

I honestly couldn’t believe she was turning 2 already, felt like I just had her yesterday.

This year has been full of so many ups and downs, but my one constant has been Sofie, and her safety, happiness, and growth.

It was a tough year, a learning year, but now, I’ve ended up with the best little girl I could have ever asked for. She’s not a little baby anymore! I have to get used to that…

She’s gonna grow up so darn fast…

Enough words, there will be more to come, so let’s get to some photos!

Hard to believe this will be my very last photo in the series (I’ll still continue to take photos, just not daily)…
Can we recap with some of the highlights of every month from the beginning?

It was a long day of birthday celebration and zoo going, the photo was one of the last things we did that night. She was tired, cranky, but I had to get this last one in! Hard to fathom this photo was going to complete my project after a year of work on this… But, I got a smile out of her eventually. 🙂

Sofia 365: Days 339 through 364 – A Month in Review

Sofia 365: 339-364

A Month in Review

Boy, it’s been a while hasn’t it?

After rounding the home stretch this past month, I thought I’d try something different with Sofie’s pictures, and I just ended up waiting.

Maybe to build anticipation, or just laziness on my part, but I held off on posting any of Sofie’s pics from the last month and just waited to compile them and just do a month in review leading up to Sofie’s birthday, and the anniversary of this project. One big bite before dessert.

I know I might sound like a bit of a broken record, but jeez, Sofie has changed so much this year, and even month to month she changes and grows.

Mid February and early march has been full of a lot of work, adventures, chapstick and lipgloss (much of it on Sofie’s face.)

Living with an almost-Two year old child the past month has given me it’s fair share of challenges and frustrations, she’s more demanding and moody, but also more playful, and she’s been growing into her own little “person”. It’s been awesome to watch and be a part of that growth.

I’m saving her very last photo from this project for it’s own post. Her birthday was a certain success, and I can’t wait to share all of our adventures from the weekend.

In the mean time, check out set of photos from the past month leading up to the very, very end. I was also very excited to get my camera back from the repair shop (or at least part of it) so that I could finish off my project with the same “quality” equipment that I started it with. Boy, did I miss my camera…

Anywho… What a month it’s been! Do you have a favorite image from the set? I sure do. 🙂

The Birthday Baby

Alright, Alright. I know, I know, Sofie’s birthday was almost a month ago and I still haven’t gotten the photos up and edited. Sorry!
I have been super busy, but here they are now!

Can’t believe how much she has grown. I especially can’t believe it has been a year already! Time sure does fly.

Here are some highlights from her birthday… mostly photos, nearly frame by frame, of her destroying her cake (which I made for her by the way).
